About

Sargent Corporation traces its beginnings to 1926 in Alton, Maine when a young man named Herbert E. Sargent bought a used Reo dump truck and set out to make a living. The demand for his work ethic, reliability, and integrity grew quickly, and by 1930 he had acquired a small fleet of trucks to go with a power shovel and a bulldozer.

Herb grew his business over the ensuing decades, with his son, Jim, joining the company full-time in 1957. In 1975 Herb retired, and Jim became president of then H. E. Sargent, Inc.

In 1988, the family sold the company to Razel, a much larger construction firm from Paris, France. By that time, Jim’s son, Herb R. Sargent, had been working full-time for the company for five years as a foreman and superintendent.

In 1991, Herb R. left H.E. Sargent, Inc. and began his own site preparation company in Bangor, Maine; Sargent & Sargent. This company grew steadily, and in 2005 Sargent & Sargent

acquired the assets of H. E. Sargent, Inc. In the following months, the combined entities were placed under one banner: Sargent Corporation.

Today, Sargent Corporation’s 400 employees work in seven states and are led by a field management team boasting over one thousand years of combined experience.
